Permission should be given taking full care of corona protocol
Citing the situation of Corona, CM Kejriwal said that the COVID epidemic is under control in Delhi for the last 3 months.

After that, when the Congress government was formed, Chhath Puja was held at 68 places. During our government, when Chhath Puja was held for the last time, the puja was done with great pomp at 1068 places.
Gopal Rai told the opinion of the expert
The minister further said that due to Corona last year, the guidelines of the central government had come that Chhath Puja should not be conducted. According to the guidelines of the Ministry of Health of the Central Government, experts were of the opinion that most of the corona virus spreads in water and Chhath Puja is done standing in water, so last time the guidelines of the central government were to stay at home. People do Chhath Puja.
